NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

[NRC-2009-0444]


Notice of Availability of the Models for Plant-Specific Adoption 
of Technical Specifications Task Force Traveler TSTF-513, Revision 3, 
``Revise PWR Operability Requirements and Actions for RCS Leakage 
Instrumentation''

AGENCY: U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

ACTION: Notice of Availability.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: As part of the consolidated line item improvement process 
(CLIIP), the NRC is announcing the availability of the model 
application (with model no significant hazards consideration 
determination) and model safety evaluation (SE) for the plant-specific 
adoption of Technical Specifications Task Force (TSTF) Traveler TSTF-
513, Revision 3, ``Revise PWR [pressurized water reactor] Operability 
Requirements and Actions for RCS [reactor coolant system] Leakage 
Instrumentation.'' TSTF-513, Revision 3, is available in the Agencywide 
Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) under Accession Number 
ML102360355. The proposed changes would revise the Standard Technical 
Specifications (STS) to define a new time limit for restoring 
inoperable RCS leakage detection instrumentation to operable status and 
establish alternate methods of monitoring RCS leakage when one or more 
required monitors are inoperable. Changes to the Technical 
Specifications (TS) Bases are included, which reflect the proposed 
changes and more accurately reflect the contents of the facility design 
bases related to the operability of the RCS leakage detection 
instrumentation. The CLIIP model SE will facilitate expedited approval 
of plant-specific adoption of TSTF-513, Revision 3.
    Documents: You can access publicly available documents related to 
this notice using the following methods:

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Matthew Hamm, Reactor Systems 
Engineer, Technical Specifications Branch, Mail Stop: O-7C2A, Division 
of Inspection and Regional Support, Office of Nuclear Reactor 
Regulation, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-
0001; telephone: 301-415-1472 or e-mail: Matthew.Hamm@nrc.gov or Mrs. 
Michelle Honcharik, Senior Project Manager, Licensing Processes Branch, 
Mail Stop O-12D1, Division of Policy and Rulemaking, Office of Nuclear 
Reactor Regulation, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC

Michelle.Honcharik@nrc.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: TSTF-513, Revision 3, is applicable to PWR 
plants. Licensees opting to apply for this TS change are responsible 
for reviewing TSTF-513, Revision 3, and the NRC staff's model SE, 
referencing the applicable technical justifications, providing any 
necessary plant-specific information, and assessing the completeness 
and accuracy of their license amendment request (LAR). It is acceptable 
for licensees to use plant-specific system names, TS numbering and 
titles. The NRC will process each amendment application responding to 
this notice of availability according to applicable NRC rules and 
procedures.
    The CLIIP does not prevent licensees from requesting an alternate 
approach or proposing changes other than those proposed in TSTF-513, 
Revision 3. However, significant deviations from the approach 
recommended in this notice or the inclusion of additional changes to 
the license require additional NRC staff review and would not be 
reviewed as a part of the CLIIP. This may increase the time and 
resources needed for the review or result in NRC staff rejection of the 
LAR. Licensees desiring significant deviations or additional changes 
should instead submit an LAR that does not claim to adopt TSTF-513, 
Revision 3.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission,
Melissa A. Ash,
Acting Chief, Licensing Processes Branch, Division of Policy and 
Rulemaking, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation.
